    That could theoretically be won.
    Seriously, how gullible can people be?

    That's just Obama's way of condemning Bush policies.

    Obama has done and is doing the same as Bush in fighting terrorism. He just calls it something else.

    You are correct, but labels matter greatly to the left.

    When people say "War on Terror" they refer to the global fight against radical Islam.
    What else would they be referring to?

    I'm talking about the Buddhists that were in Iraq. They were never part of the war. The point is.....they went after those who did nothing to them. But live there.

    The reasons matter not what matters is the practical situation.

    How can you educate a society that you occupy and bomb all the time?
    You bomb the terrorists and you do this because you cannot possibly educate them and change their ways.
    If it could be done it would be done. It cannot be done.

    Really? But thats exactly what we've been doing: the US has been attacking Al Qaeda everytime they pop up for the past 13 years- they are still around. Isreal has been doing that too (for over half a century) and they are still getting attacked.

    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.
    That is because as was stated by many posters in this very thread terrorism in its general form is a type of crime.
    Sure it is an ideological crime, a religious crime perhaps but it is still a crime and crime will always be battled, there always will be terrorism.
    If in a million years from now there will be no religions and no countries and borders you'll sure as hell still have terrorism in one form or another as there will always be people who believe it is the right way to advance their causes.

    So yeah after years of terrorists-killing terrorism still exists and perhaps it is stronger than ever before but that only means stronger force needs to be used, not that we need to surrender to the terrorists and let them have it their way.

    Good, they deserve it because they support corrupted governments and are bombing terrorists.
    There couldn't be any other reason for those fine young men to be beheading those mean people.

The CIA built al Qeda. At least they armed and financed al Qeda. The CIA funneled weapons from the Benghazi embassy to the "MODERATE" rebels ISIS/al Qeda in Syria and the more things change the more they remain the same and of course "War is good business, and business is good." The CIA General Haftar is stimulating business in LIbya. CIA stooge Poroshenko/Yatsenyuk is stimulating business in Ukraine. Over-Militarized police in the USA are spreading terror on the home front and business is good. What's not consistent?
    I think Clooney should get the role.

    Seriously?

    Maybe they ought to talk to Dubya since he was the one who took out Saddam Hussein and made it all possible...

    Well.....the Chinese didn't jump in and they have quite an interest with Iraq. Now if ISIS tries to go after their facilities might be a different story.

    They just need to send out about 2 or 3 Jet Li's start kicking some ISIS ass by the hundreds.

    Not to mention.....the Japanese should send in a few Samurai and some Ninja .....see if the terrorists still want to cut off peoples heads anymore.
